Evedir Amrath and Gaidara by MaddalinaMocanu Evedir Amrath and Gaidara by MaddalinaMocanu
After almost 5 months!! BAM... The 4th!!!

This time in the Etheral Series:

Evedir Amrath, Warcaller of Diferion, and Gaidara

:bulletblue: About Evedir Amrath and the Gaidara :bulletblue:

Evedir Amrath is the second youngest of the Amrath Brothers, older than Elril by 10 years only.
He is a kind and gentle person, with a lot of temperance, yet little tolerance for lies. He is regarded as the most calm and understanding of the Brothers and is especially fond of his elder brother, Cefros, which always seems to mild in Evedir's presence.
Ever since he was young he has been attached to Elril, often played with him and their mother, Forlien the Old, yet after she died, he has become envious of his younger brother because of his closeness to Conorias, their great grandfather.
He and Elril had become to be seen as unworthy and most of the time they were the target for Aneeril, their father's rage.
Slowly throughout the years Evedir has proved more mature than even his elder brothers and has since recently held two stances:
1. adviser to both his father, the king and to the High Believers of Diferion
2. Warcaller or Hornblower in times of war. Usually it is the task of a Royal to rally troops and sound battle and he has agreed to take on this task

The Gaidara is a weave-bound (magical) creature that is a dweller of forests and light mountain ranges. The Irthala have been breeding them ever since Conorias came to the throne of Diferion and they prove useful both through themselves and through their young.
They are the ones that revitalized song in the hearts of the burdened Irthala. Gaidara are especially respected through their ability to memorize events and recall them when asked. This trait is passed down to their young, the Aeysas.
Evedir is the official breeder and keeper of these great birds, though he is not very fond of this title. He takes care of them with love, yet sometimes he wishes there was more to him than just the title of keeper.

:bulletpurple: About the Illustration :bulletpurple:

You wouldn't believe how many sketches I made for this deviation. 5 Sketches.... 5!!!! Because each and every single one was so bloody difficult to do. Evedir is a hard character to draw, I kid you not.
I started the picture about 2 months ago, but the interest for it died out.
But the juices flowed again :D And I managed to finish it :iconfinallyplz:

The rest from the Series:

TOO MUCH BLUE!!!! :faint:

But eh, I work better with blue ^________^ I hope you like it Gents, Cheers!!!

The "spectral image" really makes this work great.

Spectral creature you mean? No, it's not necesarally spectral, it's more Etheral... thus the name of the "Etheral Series" :iconteheplz:

Point taken. I'm not that great at discerning between those two...

This is beautiful! I love the character design. The phoenix is so pretty, the blow glow gives it a magical feel. Really nice :)

Thank you :D
The bird is not a pheonix. It's a goose-like creature, a gaidara. It doesn't reborn from its ashes, it has nothing to do with the element of fire. It's more of a pshichic being, with the capacity to memorize events :D
Meleni Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2011
Ooooh sorry about that, but that is a really interesting creature!
